Shentel Builds Local Towers in the Kanawha Area to Provide 4G LTE Network
Shentel invests over $350 million in wireless network
EDINBURG, VA, December 14, 2017 (NASDAQ:SHEN) —Today, Shenandoah Telecommunications Company (Shentel), a Sprint affiliate, announced that new cell sites located in Cabin Creek, Sharon, Clendenin and Giles, WV, have been built to provide and enhance coverage in the Kanawha County area. Additional sites were built nearby in Procious, WV, in Clay County to bring maximum coverage to this area.
The new cell sites are equipped to provide 4G LTE, which means clearer and fewer dropped calls and faster download speeds to offer customers a better experience when calling, texting or streaming video. These tower additions will bring new coverage to the town of Clendenin and along Route 4, extending coverage towards Clay County. Several new sites were also added along the West Virginia Turnpike to provide continuous coverage from Beckley to Charleston.
These additional sites and upgrades are part of the Shentel-owned Sprint network upgrades that have occurred throughout 2017 in Virginia and West Virginia. Shentel has invested over $350 million to ensure 100% of their towers are 4G LTE to offer better coverage to customers in previously underserved areas.
“We are committed to providing the best possible customer experience in the Kanawha County area. With Sprint’s exceptional value on unlimited plans and our outstanding local customer service, we are fast becoming the choice for wireless in the area,” said Willy Pirtle, Senior Vice President of Wireless, Shentel.
